Sybase Afaria [EOL] Review

It protects corporate data from hacking or lost/stolen devices.

Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is the application and configuration policy.

Improvements to My Organization

Since it's mobility era and all data is in either mobile devices or tablets that need to be secured, Afaria protects corporate data from hacking or lost/stolen devices.

Room for Improvement

The installation is very complex and the price is very high compared to other MDM's.

Use of Solution

I've used it for four years.

Deployment Issues

There were issues with the architecture designing during the installation.

Stability Issues

It's been stable.

Scalability Issues

We have no scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

5/10 - SAP response is very poor for this product.

Previous Solutions

After installation of the product, it is very easy to use. It's user friendly and the operation and performance is very high. It's an SAP product so it's trustworthy.

Initial Setup

Initially it was complex, but now it is easy to use. It is fully dependent on third-party software (.Net, SQL DB, etc.) which creates problems during installation.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor team. The network architecture should be clear and check the prerequisites before installation.


The price is high when compared to others.

Other Advice

The setup and operation could be easier like as other MDM products are very user friendly and easy to use, but the price is a very important factor.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
